Disclaimer - I am neither a Zucc lover or hater.

That said, I am happy with his play given what he is getting paid - he has brought some creativity to an offensively starved team that desperately needs help on offense. As for his defensive play, I'd like to throw a couple of things into the sauce.

1) Not many (if any) NHL teams ice a roster containing 21 skaters that are all solid 2 way players.

2) Positioning can be taught. Hustle, heart, and the desire to win can't.
